An underutilized but nice effect on accessories throughout the home is adding some kind of accent light to highlight the piece. This can be achieved effectively by strategically positioning downlights or uplights above or below the sculptures. While this is a popular design technique in commercial spaces such as restaurants and art galleries, often residential clients request lights to be directed towards centerpiece paintings and photographs on walls but less so for freestanding sculptural works. Depending on the shape and size of the sculpture the light can create a whole new effect and shadow within a space.
